Philippe Coutinho trains with Liverpool ahead of Champions League opener

Philippe Coutinho trains with Liverpool ahead of Champions League opener

Liverpool's Sadio Mane had his three-match suspension for a red card received for a high challenge on Manchester City's Ederson upheld on Tuesday, after the Football Association rejected his claim of excessive punishment.

Ederson has recovered enough from his clash with Sadio Mane to make Manchester City's squad to face Feyenoord in the Champions League, but Yaya Toure has been left out once again. The match was a bit of a disappointment, however, as Sadio Mane was sent off toward the end of the first half. "His eyes are on the ball, it's ridiculous", Gary Neville told Sky Sports. They have yet to score (which if you watched the game, is nearly inexplicable at this point), and manager Frank de Boer is under huge pressure. Was it a red card or not? He could have given a yellow.

"I think everyone knows [Mané] didn't see the goalie. He wins that challenge, the goal is there for him".

However, Shearer said it was still a red card under the current rules.

Football pundit and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher was not impressed with Can's display. For Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, however, it would appear that it's the only form.

Against a lesser side they might have coped with going down to 10 men, but City are the last team you'd want to face in those circumstances. "The goalie came more in his (Mane's) direction". He didn't give the red card immediately but when he saw the player bleeding.

Klopp and opposite number Pep Guardiola both expressed sympathy with Mane afterwards and the Senegal forward wished Ederson a speedy recovery in a Facebook post, where he described the incident as an "accidental collision".

Kramer scored just five goals in 19 appearances last season, so he doesn't look like a huge threat for the Blues, but anything can happen with the City defense and Kramer might get a goal if given the chance on set pieces. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will also be an option to replace Mane and the attacking strength in depth Klopp now has at his disposal should ensure the absence of his most potent attacking threat is not fatal to his side's hopes.

The Senegal global will now be suspended for Liverpool's Premier League matches against Burnley and Leicester, in addition to a trip to the latter in the EFL Cup.
